Residents in McKinnon are a proud bunch. And why not? The relatively small suburb has had its ups and downs, though all the while it has maintained a strong local economy driven by thriving small businesses.
It all began in the early 1900s, when the building of the McKinnon railway station allowed local entrepreneurs to trade further afield than ever before. McKinnon's popular markets soon sprung up, as did the shopping centre over time.
The 1990s proved to be a more difficult period for small companies, with many losing out to global chains. However, today, there is a growing renaissance of local, family-owned and -operated businesses providing their goods and services to the McKinnon community.
This is one of the reasons why we decided to open an office in the region, to work with local businesses and help them with their accounting challenges.
Who we are
